Sales best in $25-50 range. There has been too much manufactured & buy/sell stuff in show recently, but Director states that they are not knowingly allowing it in the show. Very supportive staff! This is an outdoor show and vendors should be prepared for rain and dust.There is a watering truck on site. Lighting in the big tent is suboptimal, but at least it\'s dry inside, even when it rains. Electricity costs $100 ... Yeouch! The director reports that sales were good in 2005 and 2006, and quality was improved, with fewer low end traditional crafts allowed in. Amenities: boothsitters, hospitality tent. Hours: Thurs/Fri/Sat 10am-6pm, Sun 10am-5pm.
